France Anti Semitism White March

Last weekend, Holocaust survivor Mireille Knoll was brutally murdered in an anti-Semitic attack in her Paris apartment. The Jewish community refuses to remain silent.

Thousands of people from diverse backgrounds gathered Wednesday in Paris to express solidarity with 85-year-old Mireille Knoll’s family and the French Jewish community.

Knoll was stabbed 11 times in her apartment before it was set on fire last Friday by a young Muslim neighbor.

French President Emmanuel Macron said: “The terrorist…murdered an innocent and vulnerable woman because she was Jewish, and in doing so profaned our sacred values and our history.”

We must never forget Mireille Knoll. Let us confront hatred and anti-Semitism TOGETHER!
